If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to get ready for the transition from the London Interbank Offer Rate interest benchmark (‘LIBOR’) to the new risk-free rates. LIBOR will cease to be in effect from 31 December 2021.

The transition will affect all organisations with contracts containing LIBOR-linked financial obligations, not just lenders.

Our Banking and Finance Team can help you with:

  • Strategic advice and risk analysis on what the change means for you
  • Managing the execution process to ensure a smooth transition between benchmarks
  • Negotiating any necessary amendments to your existing finance documentation
  • Liaising with your bank and your bank’s solicitors.
